    sweet, cosy cottage, with character, if a little tired in places. Delightful owners, and a lovely peaceful setting. Very good value for money compared with other options in this area.

    We loved this quiet, cosy cottage. It was ideal for accessing country walks and visiting a variety of pretty villages.

    Lovely cottage and wonderful for the dog however, my dog is not dog friendly and nowhere did it say that the owners had a dog. The gate on the enclosed garden was not adequate as my dog got it open and chased owners dog, needless to say, I was quite upset when he caught the owners dog. Apart from that, the cottage and location was great, thank you ryalls cottage.
